The Holy Corporate Municipality of McDonaldsland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ronald McDonald with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, ritual sacrifices, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.168 billion McCitizens are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of McDonaldsland City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.0%.

The frighteningly efficient McDonaldslandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,287 trillion McPennies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 249,666 McPennies, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Skyscrapers get built in just days, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. McDonaldsland's national animal is the McNugget, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.

McDonaldsland is ranked 1,340th in the world and 541st in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 70,971 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
